GAP-43: putting constraints on neuronal plasticity.

  • Mayer Fishman
  • Published 1996 in Perspectives on developmental neurobiology


The brain must balance the need for synaptic precision with the ability to generate and change connectivity patterns in response to environmental stimuli. GAP-43 is a phosphoprotein associated with the cytosolic surface of the membrane, and is one of the most abundant among the small subset of total cellular proteins transported to the growth cone. It… (More)
